2022 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid vs. 2022 Kia Sedona

The 2022 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid and 2022 Kia Sedona are two minivans that compete for buyers looking for a high-tech family vehicle. Both come with a host of standard features, and both offer the ability to add a third row of seats. But how do these two vehicles compare when it comes down to features and performance? Let’s take a look at some key stats from each model:

Design & Style

  • Exterior Design

The 2022 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is a modern-looking crossover, but it’s not as stylish or striking as its competitors. The front end has a bit of a wedge shape that gives the car an aggressive look, but the headlights are too small for those who like our cars to have funny faces. It also has wide fenders and large wheels that make it look like it should be carrying bags full of gold coins in its trunk.

The Sedona looks like nothing else on the road today—Kia was clearly going for something different with this one, and they nailed it! The grille is flanked by thin lights that give it a more modern appearance than most other minivans currently on sale. And then there are those gullwing doors—they improve access to both rows and make you feel like you’re playing Grand Theft Auto every time you open them up (or close them down).

  • Interior Design

The 2022 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid and the 2022 Kia Sedona have similar interior designs. However, the overall design of the 2022 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is much better than that of the 2022 Kia Sedona, as it has a more modern look. The dashboard and center console of the 2022 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid looks better than that of the 2022 Kia Sedona, but they are both designed to be comfortable for passengers to use while driving the car.

In terms of space, the 2022 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid offers much more interior space than the 2022 Kia Sedona as it has an additional row of seats at the back compared with other SUVs in its class, such as Ford Explorer or Chevrolet Traverse.

Technology & Safety

The Pacifica Hybrid has a range of different tech features to choose from. All models come standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as the Uconnect infotainment system. You can also get an optional 8″ touchscreen display that offers Applink, HD radio, satellite radio, and more—plus WiFi hotspot capability! The Advanced SafetyTec package will add driver-assist safety features like adaptive cruise control (ACC), blind spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert to your vehicle.

The Sedona offers Siri Eyes Free on its 6-inch touchscreen display for iPhone users, but no wireless charging capabilities or built-in navigation system options are available now. However, it has an available blind spot detection warning system that uses LED lights in the side mirrors to alert you when another vehicle is driving alongside yours without you knowing about it!


The 2022 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid features a hybrid powertrain consisting of an all-new 3.6-liter, 16-valve DOHC Atkinson cycle inline four-cylinder engine and a two-mode electric motor. The electric motor adds 60 horsepower, while the engine provides 287 horsepower.

The 2022 Kia Sedona uses a 3.3L V6 engine that produces 276 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque with an 8-speed automatic transmission system.

The Bottom Line

In the end, the 2022 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid wins this comparison with its superior performance and premium features. It’s a car that genuinely feels like it was built for first-class travel, from its spacious interior to its high-tech infotainment system.
